The benefits of micro-needling fractional RF include smaller pores, reduced secretion of skin oils (seborrhea), minimize the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, smoothing of scars, improved absorption of skincare products and reduced occurrence of acne.
The treatment itself consists of placing a hand-piece against the surface of the skin and activating radiofrequency energy. The hand-piece consists of a multiple needle head that is accurately applied within a specified depth.
As each fine needle punctures the skin, it creates a channel that triggers the body to produce new collagen, elastic and hyaluronic acid in the papillary dermis. In addition, new capillaries are formed. This, in effect, creates a solid foundation of new dermal volume.
With a numbed face, the treatment feels like little more than light pressure to the face, with an occasional, light sparking feeling.
Our Personalized Compounded Numbing Cream, the best numbing cream available, is applied 30 to 45 minutes prior to the treatment to ensure a comfortable patient experience throughout the treatment. Many testimonials from patients say they found the treatment to be in a range of comfortable to virtually pain-free.
Radiofrequency provides heat that stimulates collagen production which has been found to lead to tighter, younger-looking skin. Combined with state-of-the-art microneedling, patients have experienced optimal results.
We recommend that you schedule at least three treatments, spaced four to six weeks apart, to provide the experience patients are looking for. Single treatment protocols are available depending on the patient’s desired results.
The actual treatment takes about 45 minutes, with an additional 30 to 45 minutes needed for numbing.
Most patients go out hours after the treatment with no makeup at all. To maximize the treatment during the first four to six hours, use our after-care regime provided. We recommend at least 5-7 days before you can fully wear makeup.
Follow the recommended after-care protocols once you get home, that will be provided by your technician. Couple this with abstinence from the sun and three to five days off from working out, and you are well on your way to maximizing its effect. Multiple treatments are recommended for optimal results.
Everyone is different, but the collagen and elastin you make is your own and continues accelerated production over the next six months as results improve over time.
Specialists may choose to supplement the treatment with serums and recovery protocols that create optimal results and faster recovery. Typically a patient’s normal recovery time is 5-7 days. After that time period, our clients are ready for a night out, with very little to no indication of any treatment that day.
